Coming home to a refrigerator stocked with ready-to-heat meals is everyone's dream, but in reality make-ahead recipes often fall short: soggy breaded chicken, gluey mashed potatoes, and dry, dense casseroles are more the norm. In The Best Make-Ahead Recipe, America's Test Kitchen, acclaimed for developing the very best recipes through their rigorous testing process, focuses on uncovering the secrets behind truly great make-ahead cooking. From oven-ready stuffed chicken breasts and rolled and stuffed flank steak to cheesy baked ziti and tamale pie, the test kitchen shows you step by step how to prepare make ahead recipes so that they taste fresh and flavorful. The test kitchen also expands on the make-ahead concept to include double duty cooking, which allows you to cook one big meal and use the leftovers to get in a head start into creating an entirely new second meal. And because everyone can use a little-make-ahead help when entertaining, the test kitchen provides flavorful, foolproof make-ahead recipes for appetizers and desserts. Holiday entertaining is especially conducive to the make-ahead concept and the test kitchen devotes a special chapter to show you how to get things under control, so that your day runs smoothly.
